One More Card before Vacation!

I'm fitting in one more card before I leave for vacation. This card is for the sketch challenge at Jingle Belles. I just had to use Stephanie's sketch one more time! To create the card I used patterned Kraft cardstock. I cut three banners and layered them on a piece of polka dotted Kraft cardstock. Then I punched a snowflake from Kraft, punched around it with a circle punch and adhered it with dimensional adhesive to a piece of polka dotted Kraft. I tucked a Santa in between the layered snowflake and the polka dotted circle adhering it with dimensional adhesive as well. The Santa image was fussy cut from a piece of scrap. I wrote the sentiment on a banner shaped piece of Kraft, backed it with polka dotted Kraft and attached it to the panel with dimensional adhesive. I  also added a small embroidery thread bow. Inside, I attached a snowflake punched from polka dotted Kraft.

Thanks for stopping by....I'm off on VACATION!
